, and the ability to sustain operations against the vicious lord's resistance army of joseph kony that has operated in the northern part of the drc and in the central african republic. today's crisis is a tragedy, but it also offers a genuine opportunity to help the congolese people set a more sustainable course towards peace and stability in their own country as well as with their neighbors. the framework for action at the national, regional and international levels that i have outlined today could help enable the peoples of the region to escape the recurring cycles of conflict which have hampered progress in the eastern congo for nearly two decades. thank you again for the opportunity to testify this afternoon. i have a longer submission for the record which you may have. i look forward to answering any of your questions. >> thank you so much, mr. ambassador, and without objection, your full statement, letters referenced by ms. bass before will be made a part of the record. mr. ambassador, a couple of hours ago -- at least online -- the guardian newspaper posted an article, the titlee of which is

proud to be a senator. [silence] >> [silence] >> [silence] >> let us pray. oh, lord our god, we have been taught by the master of no greater love exists than that one lay down one's life for another. as we leave this place today, may we never forget this man, a gentle, quiet strength, who, as a young man, nearly literally answered his master's call. for half a century, senator inouye did lay down his life day after day, serving those who looked to him to see to their security of their lives, liberties, and pursuit of happiness. all of this, thousands of miles from home. may we all be such good and faithful servants. bless us all, but bless especially his family who mourns the loss of so great a man, senator daniel k. in a way, amen.
